C2G Optimizes Signal Extension Solutions for Digital Signage

New Innovatively Simple and Flexible Solutions


LAS VEGAS (DSE 2012, Booth 558) — March 7, 2012C2G, the preferred provider of high-performance cabling and connectivity solutions, supports the need of today's businesses and education settings by combining existing architecture with the latest technologies in digital signage solutions and multiple options for signal extension. From the simple to the sophisticated, C2G offers a portfolio of digital signage solutions that seamlessly support analog and digital distribution options with our TruLink® products; A/V over Cat5, HDMI® over Coax and High Speed HDMI over Active Optical Cabling (AOC).

TruLink A/V over Cat5 extends VGA and audio signals up to 300 and 500 feet over Cat5, Cat5e or Cat6 cables without signal degradation. This solution is compatible with any operating system and requires no drivers or software. The transmitter and receiver are available in interchangeable wall plate or box form factors, allowing users to choose the design best suited for the digital signage application. Currently available in VGA, VGA + 3.5 audio, VGA + 3.5 + RS232, single port and 4-port. HDMI over Cat5 utilizing HDbaseT will be available in Summer 2012.

TruLink HDMI over Coax simplifies the complexity of a digital signage HDMI installation. It supports a 1080p HDTV signal up to 390 feet over standard RG6, and supports cascading receivers to support up to 24 monitors.

TruLink High Speed HDMI Active Optical Cable (AOC) provides another option for transmitting high definition signals over long distances. The TruLink HDMI AOC provides several unique advantages over copper cabling. The cable diameter is much smaller and more flexible than copper, providing easy installation for tight in-wall spaces. The fiber strand construction reduces the risk of EMI/RFI, so performance is stable and is optimal for use in data centers, surgical theaters, manufacturing facilities and any other applications where a reliable, high resolution display over a distance up to 20 meters is critical. The cable supports full 1080p resolution in 10 meter and 20 meter lengths and will soon be available in lengths up to 100 meters.

Garry Dukes, director of product management for Lastar, parent company of C2G stated, "The variety of options for extending and distributing analog and digital A/V signals makes it easier for everyone to address current and future needs with reliable and flexible solutions."

As the trusted expert in A/V and IT connectivity, C2G provides a wide array of innovatively simple solutions to meet every need and budget, enabling seamless integration and the flexibility to upgrade with the ever-changing technology landscape. C2G will be highlighting the latest options for distributing analog and digital signals at DSE 2012.

DSE attendees can see these solutions and more from C2G at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Booth 558. Make an appointment to meet with a C2G expert.
